A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to praise Hale End star Khayon Edwards after he uploaded a video of his latest goal for the Gunners Under-18s.
The 17-year-old was in action for Arsenal in Tuesday’s U18 Premier League trip to Southampton, which ended 2-2.
The hosts went ahead in the eighth minute with a Luke Pearce penalty, but Arsenal equalised on 27 minutes through Edwards, who fired home after turning his marker inside out.
Southampton then retook the lead through Pearce, but Omari Hutchinson rescued the Gunners with the leveller, following good work from Brooke Norton-Cuffy.
Edwards shared footage of his goal on Twitter:

And some Arsenal fans – plus teammate Norton-Cuffy – praised his efforts:
Khayon is really starting to settle down in the U18s now, the goals are coming. What a turn and finish.
